By Shelly Cedarblade


  • Does the thought of filling out an application or updating your resume scare you?
  • Do you dread the thought of having an interview?
  • Do you want to advance in your career?
  • Trouble keeping jobs?

Solomon Learning Center Can Help!

Solomon Learning Center opened its doors in August of 2010.  They offer employment readiness training, leadership and personal development curricula.

According to the Director of Education, Chris Hedlund, Solomon was opened to expand their employment readiness and leadership development classes to non-residents of the Hope Gospel Mission.  They wanted to make their material available to assist more people.

Solomon Learning Center gives job seekers an advantage in a competitive employment market.  They provide personalized attention, one on one, if needed, with an individual tutor.

Three Reasons Why Solomon Learning Center is Successful…they:

  1. Address the root cause, not the symptoms of an issue.
  2. Provide resources and assistance to those who want to overcome and be successful.
  3. Serve, without enabling, by giving a hand up, not a hand out.

Taste of Mo

By Shelly Cedarblade

I experienced a “Taste of MO” workout today with Luke “Bru” Bruflat today.  I can honestly say I have never had so much fun working out!

Let me back up and clarify a few things.  I am a 40-year mother of two, totally out of shape, and an ex-athlete who hated working out in high school!

Prior to coming to Momentum Sport Fitness, the owner Kurt Mattison and Luke were sharing stories with me on how ex-athletes often come to work out at their facility and end up “losing their lunch” because they push themselves too hard.  I assured Kurt and Luke that this would not be me, as I was the girl in grade school who purposely tripped herself while running the mile so I wouldn’t have to finish.  Little did I know that I would have to make it up at a later date!  The point is…I don’t like to work out!

I showed up right on time for my 10:00 appointment.  I think Luke thought I was going to chicken out and not show up.  I proved him wrong.  I also proved myself wrong!

Luke moved me through a variety of exercises which challenged me, but I found myself pushing myself to achieve that last rep.  I was doing lunges, curls, and ab crunches like I was training for the Olympics…okay maybe I am exaggerating a little!

The hour just flew by!  The diverse training was great!  I was never bored and I actually enjoyed working out!  The only down fall was that I couldn’t walk for five days afterward.  Luke assured me that as I continue to train my pain will lessen.  He also said that I will even look forward and enjoy the pain!  Seriously?

Thank you Luke for going easy on me and sharing with me how things are done at Momentum! I would encourage anyone who is thinking about working out to try Momentum Sport Fitness!
